Journaling:

The Quapaw Bathhouse is a Spanish Colonial Revival style building built in 1922

of masonry and reinforced concrete finished with stucco. The most impressive

exterior feature is the large central dome covered with brilliantly colored mosaic

tiles and capped with a small copper cupola. Directly above the entrance is a

cartouche with a carved Indian head set into the decorative double-curved parapet.

The Indian motif, found throughout the building, was used to reinforce

a legend,which claimed that the Indians had discovered

the magical healing powers of the spring and cave

now housed in the building’s basement. From www.QuapawBaths.com.

It ‘s still in use as a spa, with four soaking pools of thermal mineral water.

Beautifully done. The stitched borders, feather and diamond embellishments are perfect for this LO. I am very impressed with your background with the stone Indian head - well done.
